Bulk age in the secondary. In this case, a 5-gallon carboy tucked away in a dark corner of my "wine cellar" in the basement, just as in the photo below. In fact, I believe the carboy on the upper left is the Barleywine in question. Be careful to keep the airlock topped up - the vodka tend to evaporate in about 4-6 weeks.

So this is now 8-mos in the bottle. How is it? I'm interested in brewing a barleywine in a few months. What's in the barrel?

It's a good big malty barleywine but it's lost much of the hops. If I had it to do over again I'd double both the bittering and finishing hops.

Yes... I would love to hear an update. I have most of this instock... including the centennial, which I am not a huge fan of... but this might work. Or maybe sub it for the columbus that I am still not sure why I bought!

What were your IBU's? What amount of bittering would you look for the second time?

Regarding the Red Star Champagne yeast, do you add it to the bottling bucket along with the priming sugar solution?

could you clear up a few things? I'm just a beginner with only one extract batch under my belt, but after maybe two more batches i might just step up to all-grain. I might just do this for my very first AG batch and I'm going around researching for all grain while saving up for my next two kits and for stepping up. btw what was your mash temp/temps and your liquor to grist ratio in this recipe?
